A Formal Model for Trust in Dynamic Networks

Carbone, M., Nielsen, M. and Sassone, V., (2003) A Formal Model for Trust in Dynamic Networks Cerone, A. and Lindsay, P. (eds.) At Int. Conference on Software Engineering and Formal Methods, SEFM 2003.. , pp. 54-61.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We propose a formal model of trust informed by the Global Computing scenario and focusing on the aspects of trust formation, evolution, and propagation. The model is based on a novel notion of trust structures which, building on concepts from trust management and domain theory, feature at the same time a trust and an information partial order.
